Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Goodreads Blurb:
 Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

Things I liked:
1) I thought this story was unique. It definately was a different spin to what Cinderella stories normally are.

2) Prince Kai- I get why alot of people liked him. I think he was my favorite in this story.

 3) The writing was done well. It got you into the world without giving fluff type information which I am not a fan of most of the time.

Things I Was Not Fond Of:
1) I felt like the plot was a bit weak. It may be just me but there really was not much going on most of the time and I found it boring.

2) Cinder- I liked that she was sarcastic but found her to be rather whiny at times. I also that she was rather annoying as well. 

My rating: ♥♥♥
